I would bet that he will recover his inheritance. My ex was awarded the marital home because he spent his personal injury monies on it. He paid for it in full, while we were married, and had my name put on the deed. This is NYS law, I dont know where the poster is from, but she needs to know, that in most states, PIM, and inheritances can and should be recovered by the person who owned them. Was it fair in my case? Yes. Did I like it? No. I felt that I should have gotten something for supporting him, and the fact that I gave birth to our child. But the something that I felt I deserved was his, and protected by law, as personal injury money/inheritance. They are one in the same in NYS when it comes to this kind of thing. I know that if I had PIM or an inheritance, I wouldnt want ANYONE to be able to touch it... no one but me and my kids. Good Luck. Blessings, Onyx
